A Minister’s Choreography Devotion: 4th Position
Day 4: 4th Position
The feet are placed the same as in third position with the front foot moved forward. One arm is rounded, held above and slightly forward of the head, the other arm remains in second position.
Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea.
From this one verse, we can reflect on HIM as Almighty, what an awesome demonstration of HIS power! He is not constrained by elements such as gravity. Even the winds & the waves obey HIM. Read the entire section
The fourth watch of the night was between 3am and 6am, I imagine the disciples were disoriented from the sleep and probably on edge to say the least due to the storm. They did not recognize Jesus coming to them, but when He identified himself it was Peter who asked to be bid to come.
So Jesus bid Peter to come, and he stepped out of the boat.
>>> In fouth position we step forward
There are many lessons that can be gleaned from Peter’s experience that are beyond the scope of this devotion. A main focus is that Peter DID walk on water while he was focused on Jesus. As soon as he became distracted by the elements surrounding him and lost sight of who was in control of those elements he began to sink.
For whatever reason, 4th position is harder to grasp than the previous positions. Students would lose focus when they step out causing their posture and position to shift. As we step out into 4th position, remember to focus on your position and relationship with the Almighty!
